The 2018 San Diego International Comic Con has begun, and we’re going to be covering the news breaking out from the SDCC all weekend! (We’ve updated this post to include the trailer for the new episodes which you can see below.)
Dave Filoni, who has overseen the animated Star Wars series, announced during the 10th Anniversary Panel for the Clone Wars series, that the hit show is set to return. Disney is prepping twelve episodes that will help finish the story told in the original series, with plans to release the new shows on their upcoming streaming service. The show was a major hit among fans but was cancelled before some storylines were fully finished. Fans have been clamoring for a revival and it’s finally happening. Check out the trailer below.
It’s no big surprise that Disney greenlit a revival of the show. They’ve been vocal about their streaming site featuring new Star Wars content and a live action series from Iron Man Director Jon Favreau has already been announced. With Star Wars Rebels having recently wrapped up, there was sure to be another animated series coming in some form.
We’ll continue to keep you updated on details about the show as they become available. Keep following Poor Spoiler throughout the weekend for more updates on everything coming out of SDCC 2018!
